Assigning Activites 

Activity – This is a specific activity that is related to an allocation.
  • For example, the 8 am – 2 pm nursing shift has 3 sets of activities (Daily medicine dispensing, Morning Rounds and Specialist Bookings). These would be set as activities on the Allocation.

To assign an activity, open selected booking > Related tab >  select New on Activities line


Next, you can enter in selected information including Activity Name, Start and End times and Location where the activity is taking place.


Log time 

RIO Plan allows you to log time against a Booking and an Activity. To log time against a booking, open the selected booking > Related tab >  select New on Time Logs line

Enter in all relevant information and save.

Tip: You can enter in an Activity in the Activity line below to log time. 


To create a time log against an activity can also be created by opening the selected activity > select the Related tab >  select New on Time Logs line. By completing a time log this way, Activity will autofill
